Lily Collins to Receive Lacoste Spotlight Award at Costume Designers Guild Awards
INSTYLE – We’re a big admirer of Lily Collins’s red carpet style and definitely aren’t the only ones. The actress has a solid track record of wearing even the most intricate couture looks with ease, which means all eyes are on her this awards season.
But twirling in high fashion and landing high atop the world’s best dressed lists aren’t the only big moments for which the actress will be making waves next month. At the 19th Costume Designers Guild Awards taking place on Feb. 21, Collins will be honored with the Lacoste Spotlight Award—given to those who have an awareness and appreciation for costume design. And she’s in great company: previous honorees include Cate Blanchett in 2016 and Naomi Watts in 2015.
At the last Costume Designers Guild Awards that Collins attended in 2013, the Mirror Mirror actress donned a gorgeous Paule Ka gown with an oversize white bow accenting its sleek black silhouette: an homage to the hit film’s costume designer Eiko Ishioka who passed away that year and also won the Excellence in Fantasy Film award that evening.
Right now, Collins is at the Sundance Film Festival, celebrating the premiere of her new film To the Bone. She will also be releasing her memoir in March; thus, it’s a momentous and busy year for the star.
The 19th Costume Designers Guild Awards will take place on Feb. 21, so mark your calendars and just imagine what Collins will wear.
